? buying a 1989 excella 29' - inspection

Hello & help! We are looking seriously at an '89 excella '29 twin in the Tampa, FL area. Is there any resource service for inspections? We would love to have a knowledgeable independent party have a good look. We would be first time airstreamers and are lacking in experience about what to look for. Thank you, Helen & Brian

Cool try our best to check it out

i just bought a 1990 29' excella in late feb, it should aboout the same with little diffrence between them.
and these are the problems before and after i bought it

to start out with only some of the maker and tail lights worked i had to replace them all W/L.E.D's.
the furnace was pulled out and did not work i had to replace the whole thing and the replacement needed a new circuit board.
the frige needed a new cooling unit
the gears on the T.V. antanna needed to be replaced to move it up and down
the vent in the bathroom needed a new fan blade, broken due to age also needed a new vent cover
both front and rear vent cover's needed replaced along with one fan blade
the plastic seal for the A/c unit on top was cracked so i had to reseal it.
and for the big deal the floor around the door was rotten about 2-3 inches in and it went around the front to about the middle of the first front window

besides the few little dents and dings and some maintance stuff the trailer is in real good condition. some of this stuff i new before i bought it and some of it i found after i bought it all in all i would buy the trailer all over again even if i knew every little problem with it.
